The Pink Palace was torn down

I was cruising around Saratoga Springs, NY on Google Street View tonight checking out the area around Union Ave. by Congress Park to see what the pink palace was looking like these days (thats what we called the Skidmore dorm Moore Hall in the early '80s when I was there over the summers) and I just happened to end up in a position in the west bound lane where the Google Street View car seems to have passed by just as crews were working on tearing it down. A quick search turned up this article in the Times Union and this story on the Skidmore site confirming that the old building is now gone.
